I am a gal with wide feet. I often buy men's chacos. The mens version have wider soles and the straps are a bit wider too. I got the all black ones. They are easy to walk in.

I have many of the styles offered by chaco, but have always wanted to get these and finally did when the price/coupon was right. I really wanted to like them, but in the end ended up returning them.
The foot bed on these are a more firm, the sole a bit thicker, the arch a bit higher, and offer great support. They were very comfortable out of the box. The problem came when walking around in them. The major issue I had was with the additional straps. They are made of an elastic material, not the fabric strap standard on all the other sandals. When walking, the elasticity of these straps felt very odd--as if I was overextending the elasticity on the straps. Subsequently, as you step through your walk, the "flop" on these were very exaggerated as the elasticity snapped back--the weight of the flip flop added to this. Tightening the straps only exasperated this issue and I found my feet actually sliding back out of the shoe--and I like my flip flops tights towards the front against my big toe. I do not think I could walk comfortably for an extended period with these on.
In the end, I bought these for the look of the additional straps. Functionally they did not add anything and actually took away when compared to the original flip flops without the elastic straps. I highly recommend the regular flip flops (best I've ever owned), but would take a pass on these.
